Dallas Cowboys: The ugly

Honestly, this game should have been over after cornerback Trevon Diggs took another interception to the house, giving the Cowboys a 26-21 lead with 2:21 left to play. What commenced was mind-blowing, to say the least. Diggs was beaten on a double move, however, it looked like he was about to recover.

At that moment, safety Damontae Kazee came out of nowhere, taking a terrible angle, not only cutting off Diggs’ chance to make a play but also blowing any chance of making a play on his own. Just like that, this game could have very easily been lost.

Up by five late, with only a touchdown hurting you, the coverage has to force the other team to methodically move down the field. Diggs could not fall for a double move and Kazee surely should never let a player get behind him, especially in that scenario.

While it has nothing to do with the game, it is now being reported that Kazee was arrested yesterday on suspicion of DWI. These types of things absolutely cannot happen, especially during a bye week. As I said before, the littlest things can derail momentum. Players need to be smarter on and off the field. Hopefully, this is a blip on the radar and the end of the unnecessary off-the-field shenanigans.
